“I want to let you know that you have my full support, and I am in the process of looking for donors who will help you scale to greater heights. I also wish to challenge you not to be agents of tokenism but to be propagators of transformative leadership in the county,” the Speaker said.

The Assembly Deputy Speaker Jinaro Njamumo challenged the team to harness talent across all wards while also assuring the players of his unwavering support.

Nominated member Beatrice Mitaru  and chairperson of women caucus Milka Thoithi urged the team management to work towards establishing a women football club in Kirinyaga.
